Favaro. Freisa 'F2'

Favaro. Freisa 'F2'

Canavese DOC
Grape: Freisa  

Beautifully elegant dark fruit, remarkable extraction from this thin-skinned variety. This vintage is all raspberry and spice, full and rich with fig and violet nuance. 14%.

Freisa is a versatile, strong-charactered native grape variety of Piemonte; producers use it to make everything from frothy, sweet reds to seriously tannic monsters.
The vineyard, 'Vigna Riva Molini', is just 1/5th of a hectare, south facing at an altitude of 380m, morainic soils with a high proportion of stones. The vines are Guyot trained and grapes are picked by hand.  

Half of the Freisa is fermented conventionally, the other half utilises a whole grape technique. The two wines are then put together and aged in steel. Production: 750 bottles.  

It is a true study on the variety by a winemaker who loves and believes in the grape. Camillo has kept the essential character of Freisa whilst achieving some degree of control and taming its more raucous characteristics.
